The beloved spring road race through Mystic and Stonington has moved to late fall to give the best chance possible to align with its traditional race experience. There’s no predicting exactly what the next several months will bring, moving the date provides more opportunity to provide an event that lives up to expectation.

Planning is underway for a limited capacity this year. Registration is now open for the Half Marathon & 10K distances; guarantee a spot in the limited field with assurance that your registration investment is protected. Register now and you have until June 1 to request a 75% refund of your registration (less processing fees) if for any reason you decide not to participate in the November 14 event. Those registered early (by February 28) have until June 1 to request 100% refund.

The temporary refund policy gives you a safety net while race plans are developed that enable HMF to keep its non-profit operations viable. Hope for the best with confidence that HMF will be prepared for many iterations of what the future could bring. Please check back for regular updates.


Enjoy the beautiful Mystic shoreline community and serene roads of Stonington at the Hartford HealthCare Mystic Half Marathon & 10K. Experience 13.1 or 6.2 miles past historic ships, through the charming downtown, country roads, Olde Mistick Village and Mystic Aquarium.

All participants receive a comfy hoodie sweatshirt and a custom designed finisher medal with signature race theme. After the finish, enjoy a stroll through picturesque Mystic.

Safety remains top priority, but there are so many details to be worked out that only time will bring definitive answers on. Expect staggered start waves determined by anticipated finish times. Course limits will need to adjust, everything from parking plans to pre-race prep areas will be overhauled. The packet pick-up process will be assessed in addition to roles of volunteers and opportunities for spectators.
